Seasoning wood is oddly satisfying to me….I love seeing the life come back in to the grains. Without the oils, the woods tends to dry, crack and eventually break so it’s important to care for them properly. I love the idea of keeping these around to pass down so keeping them nice and oiled is important.
I use the same mineral oil/natural wax on all my kitchen woods. It’s nice and creamy without leaving a greasy feel to the touch. This will help them last longer and perform better in the long run. Flax seed oil and olive oil will also do the trick if you have those handy.
This is what I was working with. A few very loved and very parched spoons.
I used a clean, dry cloth to rub the oil in the direction of the grain. That’s really all there is too it. It only takes a few minutes and really makes all the difference.
Look at these beauties! Oiled and ready to prepare their next meal.
